Hi everyone!  Today I would like to share the new challenge at the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge.

This week's challenge:
This week the challenge team would like to see your creations using three items, materials, or techniques beginning with three different letters in the word “HEART”.

*Please write the three letters used and the items or techniques used for each letter. 

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for thprize must be submitted by Friday, February 17th at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award.Inorder to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have yoursubmission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, February 17th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC96. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

This is my take on the challenge:

For my card I used the ODBD Stamp set God's Love. Rather than use designer paper, I embossed my background with Stampin Up's Square Lattice Embossing folder  and used the Fanciful flourish from Cheery Lynn to accent the heart panel with the Butterfly.
For the challenge I used the following letters and items/techniques in the word HEART:
H - Hearts - E - Embossing  A- Aqua  R- Rhinestones

Card Recipe:
 Stamps; God's Love   Cherry Lynn Flourish Die   Butterfly Die
Paper: 110#White CS, WW, Not Quite Navy, DSP
Ink: Island Indigo, (only Aqua I could find),
Accessories: White lace, Nesties, Cherry Lynn Flourish Die,   Butterfly Die,  White Satin Ribbon, Dimensional's,  Liquid Glue, Rhinestones, Crystal Effects (on the Butterfly) Flower Punch, Pearls
